Easier claiming with your Member card
Southern Cross Health Society Easy-claim (“Easy-claim”) is a convenient way for Southern Cross members to claim for eligible healthcare services at the time of purchase, without completing a claim form.
How to use Easy-claim
Southern Cross members can present their Member card at the counter and if your plan covers the treatment and the treatment qualifies, Southern Cross will reimburse the claim directly. All you need to do is pay any contribution you are responsible for. This means no more filling out claim forms or waiting for refunds.*
Does every Southern Cross member have access to this service?
Southern Cross members can use Easy-claim for dental treatment if:
- your policy has a dental and hygienist benefit and the treatment you receive qualifies for cover under that benefit. Nonessential treatments such as whitening are not covered (refer to your policy document or call Southern Cross for details)
- you have sufficient benefit left on your policy to cover the charges.
Do I need to show my membership card to make an Easy-claim?
Presenting your Southern Cross Member card is the easiest way to make an Easy-claim, but if you do forget your card on the day we can use your full name and date of birth to find your details.
Will I have to pay any money toward my treatment at the practice?
This depends on what policy you have and how much benefit you have left on your policy. You may be required to pay a portion of the total charges at the time of payment and in some cases you will have to pay the total bill.
If you have any questions regarding your Southern Cross policy including whether you are entitled to dental coverage, please call Southern Cross directly on 0800 800 181.
